Looking for ideas on how to dress your kids this holiday season for the best children’s portraits ever? So was Olivia and Brennan’s Mom…and good news, not only did she find them….but she gave up the goods on the best kept secret in town. First, the back story. In walks Mom Amy with these two little dolls and and several bags of THE most exquisite clothes choices you’ve ever seen. We begin perusing options (and of course my mind begins to reel with joy as I imagine my options) when she tells me that all of the fabulous choices were on loan from Peek Kids . This new store at Bellevue Square has a “studio program” where you can make an appointment with Studio B Portraits for your photo shoot and then schedule time to meet with the Peek styling team at BelSquare to select wardrobe options for your photo shoot. You can borrow as much (or as little) as you’d like for your shoot — after the session, you can keep it all or just commit to purchasing 20% of the overall items that you loved. I’d never heard of anything like this but WOW, so awesome I just had to spread the word. Seriously…how cute is Brennan’s tailored vest and Olivia’s sweet little sparkly dress? As you can see these two had unlimited energy during there photo shoot and a good time was had by all 🙂
Meet Lauren from West Seattle High School. Pretty hair, gorgeous green eyes and of course I’m loving the knit scarf but hands down my very favorite accessory is her most natural addition…her super sweet FRECKLES! I was excited that we had a break in the Seattle sprinkles to pop outside (sans umbrellas) and capture these senior pictures in the gorgeous morning North light.
Delicious times two! Loved photographing these sweet sisters in their beautiful Christmas dresses (gotta love children’s clothing store Janie and Jack…they have the most adorable ensembles for the babes) I absolutely knew that we’d all be glitter-rific after introducing these over-sized ornaments (silver flecks EVERYWHERE) but what’s holiday spirit without a little bling? It took about 4.2 seconds for our young 7 month baby Julia’s mouth to meet this snowflake…she did it twice, so maybe it didn’t taste all that bad 🙂 And big sister Alexa had two different dresses…the red she told me had better “twirl” than the green. We added another favorite from their portrait session on our website here for your viewing pleasure too. Bring on the holidays! And speaking of holidays….don’t forget get our all-inclusive K.I.S.S (Keep It Studio Special) portrait session. Details here.
This is my second milestone portrait session with Ethan (his first birthday was an in-studio extravaganza) and this time we were celebrating the BIG #2. I find that at this age — the kids are not particularly interested in any kind of formal or structured children’s portrait session and it’s just best to “go with the moment.” We had an awesome Fall day to shoot so we grabbed a couple of Ethan’s favorites toys (bear & airplane) and headed outside to do a little exploring….you’ve never seen such a happy little guy!
Andrew from Eastside Catholic in Sammamish makes it SO easy to get a great shot….you’d think I’d be thrilled. BUT… If I’m honest, that gorgeous Greek skin of his that is naturally golden brown (without any effort at all) makes me want to have anger management as I am chalky white 365 days a year (I’m kidding…when I’m really mad, all my pictures turn out blurry from “accidental” camera shaking 🙂 ) There I go, off on a tangent. What I really wanted to mention was we added another one of our favorites to our Facebook here
